Inspiration for stories are often birthed in my heart in the strangest ways. My wandering thoughts and pondering of various life situations are usually the place of creation.
I know I'm due for The Price of Love, book three of the Legacy Series, but I need something in between. I had tried to write Radcliffe and had finished five chapters. However, when it came to conjuring up my paranormal ghost, I hit a road block. I just couldn't find the imagination to continue. It felt uncomfortable and the wrong time to pursue paranormal romance, and I was tired of staring at a blank page.
Dark Persuasion is bubbling up like a well at the present time. The story seems to be coming in bits and pieces and scenes are floating in and out of my mind. I seem to be grabbing them out of the air and writing the story piecemeal, which is not the way I usually work. However, when the muse arrives in a black jacket, leather boots, and handsome face, you're inclined to get motivated.
Thanks to an author friend directing me to a new website, I'm really excited about the visuals I've found on RomanceCoverNovels.com by Jimmy Thomas. As most of you know already, I love to surround myself with a storyboard for inspiration. This blog will serve that purpose. I hope you enjoy the music and the beautiful pictures.
What is Dark Persuasion about? It's an unusual story set in England in the Victorian era (where else?). By popular demand I can only say that my hero will be the tortured lover filled with anguish and guilt over one cruel act he took part in as a young boy. To find peace, he will seek absolution from a woman shrouded in darkness. It will take the art of persuasion to not only win her heart, but to keep it after she discovers his secret past.
Here we go again! Another journey into a world of fantasy and love. I hope I can bring out another full 80,000 words or more to keep my readers fascinated. As time permits and the story progresses, I'll post occasionally on this site. You can sign up for e-mail notifications when I post.
Wish me luck! I so need this, frankly. Creating characters, worlds, and romance heals my lonely soul.
